How to Bless Others - Spiritual Discipline

How to Bless Others…

“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing." - God (Genesis 12:2-3)

"No one should seek their own good, but the good of others." - Paul (1st Corinthians 10:24)

God has blessed us, and one way we thank Him for that is by blessing others.

A blessing is anything you do to help or encourage someone else. It might be saying something encouraging to them. It might be doing something nice for them.

A blessing is something you do without being asked, simply out of the goodness of your heart and a desire to bless that other person.

This comes naturally to some people. To others, it doesn’t.

To focus yourself on being a blessing to others, try to meet this goal each week:

  • Bless someone in your family
  • Bless a friend
  • Bless someone in your church
  • Bless a stranger
  • Bless someone who doesn’t like you (now that’s being Jesus!)
